And another one in the "daily painting" tradition:

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - February 2017

After almost two years of relentless drought, we have finally had good rains (and of course, now half the country's washing away!). Friend of mine took a photo in traffic to show how the traffic regulators work even under drizzly and wet conditions. I liked it and used a crop from it as reference:

Meerkat ATC.



I started this one years ago and put finishing touches to it today.

I'm slow to get into art this year..I seem to be getting side-tracked a lot. From next month, I hope to do actual painting.

You are wonderfully productive this year Brian.
I love the rainy day picture.

I have finally achieved some sort of regular routine. There is a popular perception that in order to be creative, an artist has to live chaotically. Some perhaps even really do thrive on that, but not me (and indeed not any other very productive artist or composer that I am aware of). Absolute routine is the wellspring of my creativity, and indeed also of my personal happiness.

But then, all those online tests for autism tell me I am well into the spectrum. :-)

Re: Cafe Michelangelo - February 2017

Eggs are surprisingly difficult to paint, and thus make a good exercise:

Lovely study of the eggs.
